Dear Members:
As you are aware, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has slated to close U.S. Central Bridge Federal Credit Union (U.S. Central), the wholesale credit union utilized by the corporate network, by the end of October. Corporate One is prepared for this move, most notably by converting away from APEX-ACH, which is presently underway. The closure of U.S. Central also brings changes relative to the Central Liquidity Facility (CLF) that are of particular importance in light of other regulatory changes surrounding credit union emergency liquidity currently being proposed by the NCUA.   READ MORE +

MARKET COMMENTARY
for the month of Sept. 2012
Just when it seems the economy is sinking deeper into the doldrums, a ray of light is shining through the dark clouds. To be sure, the silver linings are far from bright, overshadowed by the dismal performance in the second quarter and array of threats that may yet snuff out any nascent optimism. Most ominously is the ongoing euro crisis, punctuated by a worsening recession in Europe, slowing growth in China as well as other developing nations, and the still heavy layer of uncertainty regarding the looming fiscal cliff that threatens to send the economy into a recession next year. But the nation has lived with these threats for some time, and familiarity may be lessening their negative impact. Meanwhile, "green shoots" appeared as the calendar page turned to the third quarter. Hiring picked up in July, rebounding from a second-quarter slump. Retail sales also spiked higher during the month, ending a three-month stretch of falling sales. Finally, the housing sector is showing more signs of life, moving further away from the emergency ward and making a belated contribution to the economic recovery.  + READ MORE
